Pardon Me, Could You Tell Me What Day It Is?

We are knee deep in those post holiday lazy, hazy days. You know the ones that blend together into one long no schedule, no commitments, halcyon blur.

At 5:30 this evening Annelise looked over at me and scornfully declared, "You've been in your pajamas all day, Mom!"

"And...?", I replied, with one eyebrow slightly raised.

She shrugged and let it go. That's my girl.

Scott has been on vacation since last week (I think) and won't return to work until next week (I think). The day after Christmas both Scott and Annelise were abducted and replaced by barking seals. Kleenex, cough syrups, lozenges are the hot commodities around here, along with soap, anti-bacterial gel, Lysol spray and Clorox wipes. I am sure they are tired of hearing me oh not so lovingly remind them to use-a-kleenex-wash-your-hands-go-get-some-gel-don't-breathe-on-me 500 times daily.

Our biggest decisions have been what to eat and what movies to watch. Scott and I have finally finished the John Adams HBO miniseries (outstanding) and seen part of Ken Burn's Civil War documentary from Netflix (also very good). I've also managed to pencil in some reading time amidst all this laziness.

Scott and A., AKA the invalids, have spent a majority of the day playing video games, passing the controller back and forth between them as they play Lego Star Wars. I intervene occasionally to wipe it down with a Clorox wipe and the playing resumes.

Tomorrow's forecast looks freakishly similar.

  1. Well I am glad I am not the only one all mixed up and lazy. It's crazy how this post holiday thing does to seemingly "normal" people. We have just continously been grazing on anything that comes out of the fridge. I am also still in my pj's. Thanks for admitting I'm not alone.

  2. I hear you about the haze and the days.... I actually did go to the office today and sent the toddler to daycare. My nerves were nearly frazzled after all the "togetherness". Thankfully, we've avoided the germies...so far. Hope A and your husband feel better soon. Also, I've been meaning to write that I did get The Spirit of the Marathon from Netflix and loved it...watched it while running on the treadmill!

  7. We are just the same!!

    I actually got dressed yesterday with the plans of going *somewhere*. I didn't care where- I was just going to go. Then on the way to get into my car I decided I really didn't want to go. So, I came back inside and put my pj bottoms back on and got comfy.

  12. I am so lost about what day it is, even if I've told myself...okay it's Tuesday. I was looking at blogs and couldn't figure out why someone was doing an SPT today out of nowhere, I was seriously bewildered. But apparently it's Tuesday!

  13. It's a wonderful feeling to have nothing to do for a few days. Thank goodness for church, or we really would have lost track over these last few weeks. It's "Oh, we went to church yesterday." or "It's been a while since we've gone. Is it Wednesday?"

  15. Sorry for the sickness. Though, sometimes I think that holiday is the best time to be sick. If it has to happen, that is.

    I am not looking forward to an alarm clock next week.
